2013 Clinical Research Grant
The 2013 submission period is now closed.
Nature of the Competition
The American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation (ASHFoundation) invites investigators to submit proposals in competition for up to five grants, of $50,000 to $75,000 each, to support clinical research projects over a one or two-year period. These research grants are intended to advance our knowledge of the efficacy of treatment and assessment practices in speech-language pathology and audiology. Priority will be given to proposals investigating promising approaches that have potential for improving the everyday functioning of individuals with, or at-risk for, communication and related impairments. These funds are meant to further the goal of building capacity within the discipline for investigators to develop and evaluate evidence-based practices.
The research grants are intended to support new research ideas and directions for investigators. Priority will be given to prospective experiments likely to progress to randomized clinical trials with potential to compete for federal funding. These grants are not intended to provide additional or extended support for an investigator already supported through extramural funds for this line of research. However, proposals will be considered if a new investigator is proposing to join a research team to develop a treatment efficacy project that holds promise for subsequent funding of the investigator.
All research grant recipients will be announced and recognized at the November 2013 ASHA Convention in Chicago. Funds will be disbursed corresponding to the proposed project period. Interested individuals should carefully read the section on eligibility and, upon determining that all criteria are met, prepare a proposal for submission.
